Mazda is a company that fully stands behind its Zoom-Zoom slogan with sporty passenger cars, nimble crossovers, and some of the purest sports cars anywhere. Taking their latest corporate design language to the next level, Mazda has given almost its entire lineup full refreshes or facelifts in just the last two years. They've added plenty of standard features and a bounty of optional luxury items to most models. Notably, the compact Mazda 3 and Mazdaspeed 3 models are all-new for 2010, and are quite exceptional. You won't find a more sprightly people-mover than the Mazda 5 van, which is becoming increasingly popular. The brand is coming into its own in terms of styling, performance and reliability, and buyers would be wise to put any Mazda on their short list.
